    If you don't want to spend $100 for a King headset, check out the Cane Creek S-3. It's a solid cartridge bearing headset at about a third of the price of King, with only about a 10 gram weight penalty.

    I also support the S3
    I don't think the stumpjumper is a good match for something like a 36 or lyrik
    09AS-Rsl/09Six

    S-3, Pike, RP23 will give it 140mm travel in the rear.

    thanks for all your adv's. I found S8 for 10 more than S so probably will go for it.

    I assume it comes with a Triad rear shock. You could try it with that, but you will want a different shock eventually. Compression damping is non-existent on that shock, which sucks your acceleration. A true Fox Float R or RP23 would be much better.
    The 120 mm Float RL that came with my bike is well matched. Only rarely do I wish I could lower the height, like a Talas, on the steepest of climbs and switchbacks. For that reason I would not recommend an unadjustable 140 mm, I think it would wander on real steeps. That's just me though, I haven't tried it, but also haven't converted my fork to 140 for that reason.

    If we were to fit a RP23 for the rear, what is the eye to eye length that can match the traid or specialized AFR?
